We just got a VMotion & it would turn on and then we'd put the game in and it would shut off. I have no clue whats going on.


Your smartridge is dirty, or you inserted a smartridge that was dirty and now have dirt grime or Mac n Cheese in your cartridge slot. (happens to us all, only takes a kid a split second to get grime on a smartridge, even one that's brand new!)
Clean the contacts of the smartridge with common rubbing alcohol. In very dirty circumstances where the pins are tarnished, polish them with a pencil eraser.

For the socket, if it has become dirty, do the following:
Remove Batteries, AC Adaptor or car charger cord, rechargeable battery packs first....
Invert the Vmotion or Vsmile, pocket or cyber pocket. open the slot dust cover with a finger or eraser end of a pencil, blow compressed air (dust off spray in the computer aisle) into the socket opening. this will remove loose debris. next,take a good hard paper stock business card. cut the business car to match the Smartridge edge (cut out the center and the card length to fit.) Using the mostly paper side of the business card (usually one long edge has very little printed on it), open the dus cover again and Insert and remove the business card and look at the paper edge. Is the card dirty now? continue inserting and removing until you notice the pin tarnish or foreign material collecting on the business card. Now it is clean. In a really bad case of Mac-nCheese, you could use two business cards stacked, and soak the edge in rubbing alcohol, then go back with the dry Business card method. Do not use a screwdriver, comb, brush of any kind on the socket contacts. The socket contacts are easily damaged. allow the unit to completely dry (20 minutes) then re-power the unit (without a Smartridge). power off, insert a smartridge and power on and your kids are back to playing again, until the next PB

Remove all Smartridges, controllers, adapter or batteries.
Examine the Smartridge slot for loose objects, Blow into it to
remove dust or debris.
Pull back the plastic sleeve on the Smartridge and clean both sides
of the metal contact with alcohol and a q-tip.
Insert the Smartridge into the Smartridge slot and remove quickly
twice without turning on the V.Smile unit.
See if that will help.

We have a vtech vsmile and it will not work correctly!!! it will turn on with no game in but as soon as you put a game in to play...it goes blank and will not play the game. It won't even let you turn it...


We had the same problem. Put alcohol on a q-tip. Pull back the plastic sleeve on the Smartridge (game) and clean both sides
of the metal contact. Insert the Smartridge into the Smartridge slot and remove quickly. Then insert Smatrige and turn on the power.

I did this to all of the games and now it works like new!

Hope this helps!

My childs vsmile switched on but then switched itselfs off,changed the batteries & it worked for a few seconds then switched off again & will not switch on.


Try this: press and hold the ON button for 45+ seconds WITHOUT the batteries. Then put new batteries in. It worked for me. I bought a second unit at the thrift store and thought it was broken until I tried that. Works just fine now.

Won't work with smartridge


Make sure the V.Smile is turned off before inserting the cartridge. If it is still acting funny:
Things you can try to get the V.Smile TV Learning System to work:
1) Press the Reset – Press and hold the ON button for about 10 seconds
2) Make sure the game is inserted far enough into the system, and that it is pointing in the right direction. You may occasionally need to clean the contacts.
3) Also, make sure you are using the supplied power cord/adapter, not batteries. Batteries cause more problems than they’re worth.

VSmile only turns on when games are NOT in it


remove the Smartridge.
Inspect the inside of the Smartridge by pushing
up the protective sleeve on the bottom of the
Smartridge. Clean the inside piece with a dry, soft
cloth. Then, re-insert the Smartridge and press the
On Button.
